Frequently Asked Questions


What kind of climbing is available at ICB?

We are a bouldering gym. Bouldering is climbing short walls without any need for ropes or specialty equipment. If a climber falls, they’ll land on mats directly under each climb. Bouldering is one of the most popular types of climbing. It provides a great entry point for those new to the sport but is still challenging no matter how long you have been climbing.

What should I wear?

Whatever makes you comfortable! We recommend anything that allows you to move freely. Traditional workout wear is common.

Is there an age limit?

Kids are often natural climbers! Iron City Boulders is open for all ages, but an adult must accompany any climbers under 13. Youth under the age of 13 are also not allowed in the fitness and training areas.

Do I need any special training or equipment to start?
Not at all! The only special equipment needed for bouldering is climbing shoes. We rent shoes for those who do not have their own and have them available for sale. We pride ourselves on having climbs suitable for all skill levels, so we’ll have something for you to try.

What does my day pass get me?

Your day pass gets you full access to the climbing and fitness area for the whole day. If you want to step out for lunch and then come back, go right ahead!
